COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkellers tribute to the green gold.

Mikkeller er klar med endnu en IPA, der ikke er bange for at leve op til navnet. Humlen er som den skal vre: aromatisk, amerikansk og aggressiv, s man ikke er i tvivl om hvad man nyder. For nyde er hvad Green Gold ligger op til. Karamelmaltens sdme og fylde danner en lkker bund, der rammer smagslgene, inden humleeksplosionen stter ind, og som rydder op igen, og balancerer det samlede indtryk, s man kun har lyst til n ting, nemlig endnu en tr. De lkre amerikanske humler simcoe, amarillo og cascade giver masser af citrusnoter, men kler ogs for din tunge med fersken og grannuancer samt masser af friskhed.

Foffern (1762) - Bod, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle at home. A deep amber colour and misty. On top a big frothy, and afterwards, bumpy head. The aroma hits me allready when i open the bottle, and is dominated by fruity and floral hops with additions of bread and hints of alcohol. The flavours are definately following up with a fruity and very hoppy taste. There are also some grains and wood. The bitterness is very distinct and lasting, and gives a dry ending to it. A very slick mouthfeel. Very rich and IPA which is naturaly dominated by hops, but still are very balanced and round in the taste. Nice one.

LinusStick (3322) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2012
A decent IPA. Very European in flavor. Aroma was roasted malt caramel and toffee. Pour was a dark cloudy gold/light brown with a lots of sediment and a one finger off white head. Taste was very malty. Strong toffee, chewy caramel and hints of brown sugar in the front. After the swallow some green, slightly bitter European hops come up and leave the mouth bitter. Perfect balance of sweetness and bitter. Not the way I like my IPAs but very tasty nonetheless. Nice carbonation.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - FEB 2, 2012
Pours orange, ivory head. Smells raw green hop aromas first then some tropical notes that remind Simcoe or Amarillo hop varieties. Medium bodied, well balanced, sweet up front, and turns into a little bitter but fair aftertaste. Extra American Style IPA. A kind of Syhthesis between all the Mikkeller Single hops I tasted last month. Really Good !

DYCSoccer17 (3668) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 29, 2012
3-4 ounce sample from a bottle at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this has stale and soapy hops, with maybe a little light spiciness. Nothing else really happening. Mildly hazy amber body with a moderate off-yellowish head that is strong. Starts well...with herbal hop flavors. Not too much else happening. Some huskiness in the middle. Light bitterness late. Very subdued. Not so good. Fuck Mikkeller and their underwhelming beer.

drjay44 (3558) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2012
33 cl. bottle. Pours a medium, long duration, ivory colored head, with extensive lacing, over a very slightly hazy light amber (SRM 7) body....nose is pine, light citrus, toffee/caramel, light floral honey.....taste is toffee/caramel, with floral honey tones, leading into light apricot, finishing with a soft bittersweet hop layer....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation low. This is sweeter and has many more complex malt tones than many an "American" style IPA. The sweetness resembles the I/DIPA style more than that of the typical IPA, but without the larger hop backbone. It is in other words slightly unbalanced for my palate. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2012
Shared bottle @ Cardinal. Yet again Mikkeller delivers the goods. This is a rock solid IPA. And the aromas is rich of the green gold. It pours a white head and is golden in color. Medium body and tastes of citrusy hops and some sweet malts. Clean flavors. Leaves with a nice bitterness that lingers in the back of the mouth for a while. My kind of IPA.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2012
Orange-amber coloured beer, a nice sized and good holding head. Sticks great to the glass. Decent bitter-sweet/sour taste, with a nice citrussy-caramel flavour. Seems a bit simple, but nicely good combined beer.

Quack-Duck (9368) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2012
bottle from Bierkompass. Cloudy amber-brown colour, large off-white head. Hoppy aroma, slightly citrusy and green. Full-bodied, robust grainy malty background with lots of green, resiny hops and a touch of citrus fruit.

MotherBrother (935) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2012
Tap @ beer temple. Pour deep, hazy amber, with a two-finger white head. Aroma of pine, grass, fresh fruit, slight toffee, plenty of hops. Sweet up front, and turns a little bitter towards the end. Medium body, with a lively, fizzy carb.
